When Jaya (my sis) was with us, she made Karam petti koora podi and we happily made Dondakaya Karam Petti Koora and also Beerakaya Karam Petti Koora (which I shall post shortly). Both of them turned out very yummy. This is a very simple curry as long as the Curry powder is on hand. Fast and Simple as I like to call it. Here is how we enjoyed this delicious curry.

Dondakaya Karam Petti Koora

Ingredients - 

Dondakaya (Tindora) chopped 2-3 cups
Salt as needed
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Tamarind juice 1 Tbsp (or as needed)
Sugar/Jaggery 1 tsp
Coconut (Fresh/Frozen or Dry) 2 Tbsp
Mirchi Powder 1/4 tsp (or as needed)
*Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, few curry leaves)

*This seasoning is optional. Just 2 tsps of oil without the dals also will do.

Method Of Preparation - 

Chop Tindora in any shape desired and I like to partially boil in the microwave as it tends to be a tad faster!

In a heated sauce pan, add oil and the rest of the seasoning. After the mustard seeds splutter and the dals get a nice brown hue, add the partially cooked dondakaya and cover with a lid. Let the dondakaya cook for about 8-10 min.

Add turmeric, tamarind juice, karam petti koora podi, sugar,coconut, mirchi powder, salt and mix well. Check for the taste and adjust accordingly. 

The curry is just a little moist and not too watery. This is best served with steaming hot rice.

Sending this to Akila's 'Dish Name Starts With D' event.
